Drinking mineral water seems to be the newest trend in the beverage industry. But is mineral water healthy? Or is water that’s been distilled or filtered through a reverse osmosis system better for your health?
Although this whole topic is debatable, more evidence points to maintaining a more healthier body by drinking mineral water over these other types.
Distillation and reverse osmosis systems use boiling point and molecular size, respectively, to filter water. And since synthetic chemicals both have lower boiling points and are smaller in molecular size than water itself, they are not effectively filtered out. On top of this, they filter out all the trace minerals that are naturally found in water.
Why is mineral water healthy and preferred over demineralized water?
Drinking mineral water just makes more sense. Think about it- nowhere on this planet is there a natural source of water than doesn’t contain trace minerals like calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium. The human race has been drinking mineral water and running on it since the beginning of time. Why stop now?
Mineral water is an important part of nutrition and is needed for all cellular functions. In fact, by drinking mineral water, your body can absorb beneficial minerals faster and more easily than it can from food.
Why is drinking mineral water healthy? Here’s some things you probably didn’t know:
*Drinking mineral water over the long-run can prevent multiple mineral deficiencies that would usually develop by drinking demineralized water.
*It helps maintain a healthy and safe pH balance of your bodily fluids. Demineralized water is more acidic because it contains more hydrogen. When you drink this kind of substance, your body needs to neutralize it, and it does this by pulling minerals from your teeth and bones.
*People who drink demineralized water are more likely to have cancer in some point of their life. Free radical production increases in a acidic environment, which increases the risk of cancer. It’s actually been shown that cancer cells can ONLY grow in an acidic environment.
So is drinking mineral water healthy? In short, YES!!! And don’t think that you have to pay TONS of money on bottled drinking mineral water or order to reap the benefits of it.
My family and I have a home water filtration system that filters out more than 99% of all the bad stuff in water while leaving all the beneficial minerals in it. And you know what the best part is? We only pay 9 cents for a whole gallon of pure, filtered, mineral water!
